Mint Statistics: American Legion commemorative coins debut

First-day sales of the 2019 American Legion commemorative coins totaled 39,671, according to U.S. Mint spokesman Michael White.

With sales of 4,512, more than half of the allotted amount of the three-coin proof sets have already sold, but plenty of the individual coins are available for collectors.

The .999 silver dollars are the most popular amongst collectors, with 19,333 sold; however, still many remain to reach the maximum mintage of 400,000.

Overall, sales seem on the low side. What are your thoughts on the rate of sales on these commemoratives? Drop us a note at with your thoughts.

Total sales of 2019 gold proofs increased from 7,984 to 9,338 this week, increasing by 1,354. Among the other top increases from last week’s report are the 2019 10-coin clad proof set, now at 249,796, while the 2019-W proof silver Eagle increased by 2,512. The 2018 American Innovation $1 (S) proof set increased week over week by 1,442, bringing the total sold to 171,146.

As expected, there isn’t much news to report on 2019 bullion, with just a modest increase being reported on the gold one-ounce Eagle and gold Buffalo.
